Police report: Liquor board chairman asked officers to make DUI arrest ‘go away’

WASHINGTON — The chairman of the liquor license commission in Prince George’s County, who was arrested for drunken driving last week on the opening night of MGM National Harbor, repeatedly referenced his job and asked officers if there was a way “we can make this go away,” according to a police report from his Dec. 8 arrest.

Charles Caldwell, 72, the chairman of the Board of License Commissioners was involved in a minor traffic accident about 11:40 p.m. Thursday when his 2006 BMW struck another vehicle where traffic was merging near Monument and National avenues. Caldwell then backed up into another vehicle, police said.

The police report, released by Prince George’s County police Monday evening, stated Caldwell smelled heavily of alcohol, mumbled his speech and nearly fell over multiple times while performing a field sobriety test.

Caldwell has been charged with driving under the influence and other traffic-related offenses.

Makes you wonder where he got the idea making something "go away" was a possibility. Agree w 943 that the elites expect different treatment and often get it.

Sounds similar to a local state's attorney story until SBY News broke it, bet it would have been taken care of through backroom, closed door deals if it had not been reported to the public at large!

He is 72. The majority of his life this would have gone away. The state of total surveillance has eliminated that option for 99% of the population. The 1% still gets a pass most of the time.
